I'd be inclined to go this way

It'll still be hollow and light considering the toys we're getting these days in the TR line, regardless of it's weight.

Toys with hollowed out parts aren't necessarily lighter.
e.g. Combiner Wars Hook weighs 176g whereas Generations Springer with all accessories attached weighs 148g. So despite Hook's 'hollowness,' he's actually heavier than non-hollowed Voyagers like Springer.

Dengeki Hobby posted 'pics' of LG-43 but it's all the same renders we saw from Hasbro but with their watermark on it. I'm not even sure if TT released the pics so it could just be them posting the Hasbro pics in order to run a story about it

What are the odds that's the final paint jobs? I was hoping it had much more in the way of paint apps given the incredible detail of the mould.

I hope not! And it's a bit disconcerting when TTMall is using the same renders as Hasbro rather than live shots which they have traditionally done...

Nonetheless it's showing us the comparative size of the toy with Metroplex and that the tail isn't too short as others had been concerned about with the CG promotional renders.

Paint apps? I'm leaning more towards a sticker kit like we've seen with metro and fort max. It still looks awesome though

It's a nice comparison for sure! But TT could have used a grey prototype to ably demonstrate scale and dimensions, or in the absence of that, put in a disclaimer that the final colours may vary etc...

This only confuses the consumer who is deciding which version to choose.

He's up at HLJ for preorder.

I was going to get him from PC, I cashed in my 1000 Energon points, went through the checkout and found that Zippay isn't working at the moment. Lame. I hope the $65 off coupon doesn't expire.
